Record Search


Direct links to lists of baptisms, marriages and burials for the Rimington family can be found under Family Records opposite. If you want to search for records for a spelling variant of Rimington, or for any other family name, just click below on the first letter of the family name you are interested in. This will open a new tab in your browser giving you a list of family names beginning with that letter, for which there are baptism records in our database of half a million church and public registry records.

You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.

The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for www.jerripediabmd.net. For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.

New records

From August 2020 we have started adding records from non-Anglican churches, and this process will continue as more records, held by Jersey Archive, are digitised and indexed. Our database now includes buttons enabling a search within registers of Roman Catholic, Methodist and other non-conformist churches. These records will automatically appear within the results of any search made from this page.

Origins of surname

This name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational surname deriving form the place called 'Rimington' near Gisburn in West Yorkshire. The place name is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as 'Renitone', in the 'Yorkshire Charters' of 1182 as 'Rimingtona', and in the Yorkshire Fines Court Rolls of 1244 as 'Rymmigton'. The name means 'settlement on the boundary stream', derived from the old name of the stream or brook on which 'Rimington' stands, the Old English 'Riming', boundary stream, from 'rima', rim, border, bank, with 'tun', settlement, village, enclosure.

Early records

As far as is known, there have been only been four or five Rimingtons in Jersey, but as three were grandfather, mother and aunt of Jerripedia editor Mike Bisson, he has decided that they should be included in our family section - and why not?

Jimmy Rimington, the son of a Leeds publican, came to Jersey in the early years of the 20th century and married Constance Annie Smith, daughter of a Lancashire family not long established in the island. They had two daughters.

In 1896 Violet Rimington Abernethy, the daughter of William James Abernethy and Lucy Ellen Rimington, was baptised at the Town Church and one of the godparents was Percy William Rimington, but this family appears to have had no connections with Jimmy Rimington. There are no Rimingtons in the island today.

Tips

The church record links above will open in a new tab in your browser and generate the most up-to-date list of each set of records from our database. These lists replace earlier Family page baptism lists, which were not regularly updated. They have the added advantage that they produce a chronological listing for the family name in all parishes, so you do not have to search through A-Z indexes, parish by parish.

We have included some important spelling variants on some family pages, but it may be worth searching for records for a different spelling variant. Think of searching for variants with or without a prefix, such as Le or De. To search for further variants, or for any other family name, just click on the appropriate link below for the first letter of the family name, and a new tab will open, giving you the option to choose baptism, marriage or burial records. You will then see a list of available names for that type of record and you can select any name from that list. That will display all records of the chosen type for that family name, and you can narrow the search by adding a given name, selecting a parish or setting start and end dates in the form you will see above. You can also change the family name, or search for a partial name if you are not certain of the spelling

The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for www.jerripediabmd.net. For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.

New records

Starting in August 2020 we are adding several thousand new records from the registers of Roman Catholic, Methodist and other non-conformist churches. These will appear in date order within a general search of the records and are also individually searchable within the database search form
